16 weeks 2023 Persian Language Semester Program and Internship

My experience at the ASPIRANTUM Language School has been one of the most important and fruitful of my academic career, not only on a scientific level but also on a human and personal level. The 16 weeks of the intensive Persian courses greatly improved my knowledge of the Persian language. Through the program offered by ASPIRANTUM and the incredible expertise of Prof. Voskanyan and Ms. Beyt-Movsess I have also learned a lot about Iranian culture, its history, and its relevance. The program is structured to allow a complete study of the spoken and written language, with various activities that improve the knowledge of Persian in an exceptional way.

I had the opportunity to learn and appreciate Armenia's history and culture and admire this fascinating country's incredible beauty through the various excursions offered by ASPIRANTUM.

This semester in Yerevan with ASPIRANTUM helped me to understand societies and cultures different from mine and to appreciate them fully. An experience I will never forget. Xeyli Mamnun!

“The opportunity to be guided by globally renowned experts is a truly unique experience that has led to far greater insights into the Persian language and culture than I had expected before coming here. While the classroom experience is excellent, one of the true strengths of the program is the cultural opportunities outside of class.”

“Every day, we have been able to practice our reading, writing, listening, and speaking of the Persian language. Professor Voskanyan and Ms. Beyt-Movsess are incredibly knowledgeable about linguistics in general and Persian culture, literature, and history. I have been introduced to more exciting topics than I could have imagined before my time here in Armenia.”
